    Pros

    1. Good place to work and learn newer technologies; storage/networking
         asic/chips/processors/soc.
    2. Good R&D opportunities and technical opportunities
    3. Vaules top/core employees
    4. Well balanced in regards to work env and personal life sytle.
    5. Flexible work hours and work from home options.

    Cons

    1. Confused Senior Management; Plans heavy investment
        in R &D and pulls plug off around the project completion
        time frame. Repeated failure in business acquisition integration
        in core products due to bureaucratic/lengthy processes in Old
        groups/divisions causing havoc in fast-moving smaller acquisition
        business.
        Some times heavy investments in some R&D group could go on
        un-noticed for a long time which yields very less or puny
        percentage of revenue returns; attitude of these kind of group
        engineers/management is questionable.

    2. Sloppy Board of Directors and CEO & higher management; sleep
         on innovations in newer evolving technologies; viz storage &
         network convergence, SSDs etc. Very conservative approach
         in investing in evolving newer related technologies but does
         significant investment for it's core products which may cease in
         future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Worry about investments and their returns.
    2. Plan acquisitions which yeild good returns. Don't buy companies
        to integrate into LSI divisions which are in a near future sell-off option.
    3. Consider Investing in newer evolving realted technologies where there
        is considerable industry backing and lead the pack. Break high
        Management reservations/attitude towards evolving technologies
        in relevant field which yield good returns on appropriate investment.
    4. Offer competitive package to engineers.
    5. Shuffle technically capable staff in core products to newer evolving
        related technologies which isn't core competency.
